Wishing on a Full Moon

We've just been to Blackpool for a couple of days. I've never visited there before and was intrigued to know what it was like. My lasting memory of our stay will always be the cockroach that won a fancy dress competition dressed as Santa, complete with white beard. It was sunny but so very cold and the sky and sea were so BIG! I'm used to Devon seas so this was quite an experience. I'm listing my painting of Wishing on the Moon on Etsy today. :) I was inspired to paint it by a wish I made on the full moon!
Do you ever wish on a full moon?

Beautiful work, I feel a strong connection to the moon but have never wished upon it. Might have to give it a try.

I do like this one....love the birds suspended. I love the moon and love falling asleep beneath it. Very calming. Never wished upon it either.

What a lovely face, such an expression.
No, I don't think I have ever wished on a full moon, you will have to let us know if your wish comes true.
Blackpool is so very different to when I first visited some 60 years ago. I don't think it is quite so "wonderful" as it used to be but then again, to a child, so many things are wonderful.
